Also, they make these, not buy from some one (i.e. no "purchases + freight" of finished goods by a manufacturer!). Hence, we figure out CoGS in the following manner. The approach is a simple sequence of steps. S1: start with how much finished goods the manufacturer had on hand (i.e. BIFG.) This is given in the question to be $125,000 S2: Next, add to this the value of new finished goods (NFG) whose manufacturing was completed during the year by converting work in progress. This is NOT directly given in the question, but must be computed from the information given. S3: The sum of S1 and S2 gives you the total value of finished goods that could have been sold during the year (FGAS) S4: However, not all of these were sold. Some finished goods remained unsold at the end of the year and were in inventory (EIFG.) This is given in the question to be $175,000 and must be subtracted from S3, what could have been sold.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
